Green Honeycreepers (Chlorophanes spiza) are brightly colored tanagers found from southern Mexico to Brazil. Seven subspecies are recognized. This species occurs in the canopy of humid lowland forest. They can be found singly or in pairs and often forage as part of mixed species flocks. Green Honeycreepers consume mostly fruit although they also consume small insects and nectar. The IUCN lists the conservation status of Green Honeycreeper as “Least Concern.” Although the Green Honeycreeper is widespread and common, little is known about many aspects of its natural history.
